Out Jazz, an outdoor free musical event, is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year. Starting on May 7, Out Jazz will take place in the weekends, in the capital city of Portugal, Lisbon, until the end of September.
The first event will happen on May 7, at the Marechal Carmona Park, in Cascais, featuring DJ Lucky. Out Jazz will take place from 5 pm until sunset, in several gardens and parks in Lisbon, but also in Cascais and in Troia. Some of the venues this year include the Belem Tower Garden, Tapada das Necessidades Garden, Estrela Garden and Campo Grande Garden.
Other musicians scheduled to perform are DJ Mary B, Quinteto Ricardo Pinto, DJ Rykardo, DJ Nuno di Rosso, DJ Johnny, DJ Tiago Fonseca, André M. Santos & MOb Ensemble, Rita & o Revólver, Francisco Sales, They Must Be Crazy, Salvador Sobral, Afrocuban Project or DJ MR. Bird.
This year Out Jazz features a new event called Out Fest. Taking place on September 24 and 25, it will be a paid event, with some of the musicians that performed in Out Jazz over the past years. The venue is still to be disclosed.
The founder of Out Jazz, José Filipe Rebelo Pinto, says in a press release the success of the event is due to the fact that they were the first ones to bring some life into the public gardens of the city, on Sundays.
